Au Revoir Mickey?

Disney may be closing all of their stores in Canada by the end of the summer in response to the pandemic and a shift in retail according to Retail Insider.

They had recently closed 60 stores, two of which were in Canada. And now they may close 18 of the remaining locations in this country, which are located in Ontario, British Columbia, Alberta, and Manitoba. But I suspect they may open a Canadian fulfillment centre or two for Canadian orders at their shopdisney.com site.

Perhaps we will eventually be able to order memorabilia from the Disney+ app itself in the future. But hopefully they might consider re-opening larger locations in the tourist hotspots in Vancouver, Edmonton, Toronto, Ottawa and Montreal.

Only time will tell.

Nova Scotia To Shut Down
